WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
We got our digs in on NBC earlier in the week and now it's time to point out another media source making a major blunder on the superdelegate front. Some people have questioned us on our need to point out these errors. We do it because we're unpaid part-time bloggers with no connections to either campaign and no journalism experience whatsoever, and frankly, it's fun to point out mistakes by our well-funded professional friends in the media.
WASHINGTON (AFP) - moved a step closer to rival in their race for superdelegates Friday, as two senior figures in the Democratic party endorsed his candidacy for the White HouseWe can understand when commenters on our superdelegate list mistake the latest endorsement as coming from a superdelegate but from a major source like AFP? If you take a look at either of our lists you'll see that neither is a superdelegate. David Boren's son Rep. Dan Boren is a superdelegate but the elder Boren is not.
The Obama campaign announced that former senators Sam Nunn and David Boren, both of them superdelegates, the party luminaries who will decide the Democratic nominee in November's election, were coming on board as advisors. - AFP Yahoo and AFP Google
Update: Shame on Judy Woodruff of PBS' The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. As mentioned in the comments, she repeated the bad information about Boren and Nunn. She should know better, or her producers should know better. You can see the video here - middle video - "Clinton, Obama Enter Final Stretch in Pennsylvania", 10:10 in.
And the comments also mention that it happened on Olbermann's show -- Even though First Read noted earlier today they were not superdelegates. (See, we can say nice things about Chuck Todd's First Read!).
Let us know if anybody else messes up,
